If no more than three years ago you were injured in an accident that was not your fault, and your injuries needed medical attention, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim and you might want to use the services of a personal injury lawyer to help you.
With 206 bones in our bodies, one of them being broken is a very common result of accidents. It depends on which bone has suffered, and how bad the injury is, as to how much it will affect your life while you are waiting for it to heal. If we use a broken knee as an example, it sounds quite simple, but your would not be able to use your leg for some time and you would possibly lose income from having to have time off work to recover.
Knee fractures could be a simple crack that will just need rest and patience for it to heal, but you could have a clean break right across the knee bone. In this situation, because of the lack of muscle covering the knee cap, you can quite often feel the break through the skin.
A broken knee can be extremely painful and if you have sustained this injury in an accident that was not your fault, you should be contacting personal injury lawyers about claiming compensation.
Most knee fractures happen because of a direct blow to the knee and this can cause the bone to break in many different ways. You will soon know you have a damaged knee because:
- You will immediately suffer intense pain
- The knee will start to swell very quickly
- You will be unable to bend the knee
You should seek immediate medical attention
A visit to A & E is important if you think your knee might be fractured. You need to prevent more harm to the knee happening and it is important to get treatment quickly before any displaced bones or fragments of bone cause more damage. The treatment usually lasts 6 to 12 weeks but can be longer in severe cases.
